Our Company

 

Bold Bean Coffee, hailing from the Bold City of the South, Jacksonville Florida. The Bold Bean story started over 10 years ago in a garage just as a hobby. Bold Bean has become a way for us to deeper develop relationships with not only our friends in our city, but also with our farmers in our sourcing countries. 

We Source, Roast, and Brew.

We are Bold Bean Coffee Roasters.

Jay Burnett

Founding Partner

Founding Partner, Jay Burnett, launched Bold Bean Coffee Roasters in 2007 as a follow-up to a nearly 30-yearcareer as an award winning journalist and magazine editor. 

Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the coffee," says Bold Bean's founder, when discussing his decision to walk away from publishing to write a new chapter in life. 

These days Burnett prefers staying in the background and as he puts it, "out of the way." 

Our team has created something special here," he says. "I just want to see how far they can take it."

Wholesale Account Manager

1) Wholesale Accounts Manager. Responsible for ensuring current customers have everything they need for their coffee programs to be successful.

 

2) wife, two little girls, guitar, love standup comedy, obsessed with Thai food. I’ve been a fan of Bold Bean since they opened. I love everything about the mission of Bold Bean: people need to walk out of our shops in a better place than before they walked in. Sourcing coffees at origin to ensure fair wages and good farming practices are utilized. Connecting people with these coffees makes me happy because I know it elevates their day.

Adam Burnett

Knead Bakeshop: Operations Manager

As the bakery operations manager I develop recipes and oversee the production of all food at Bold Bean. I enjoy being able to play around with different ingredients and flavor profiles.  Creating new menus keeps things fun and exciting.

Days off I like to spend eating food with friends, walking my dogs, finding a new book, and exploring the Guana River in my kayak.

Erin Lee: Riverside Location

Since opening our doors in 2011, Erin is proud to be one of Bold Bean's founding members. She has helped to curate a space which values community while also being able to confidently say that we're serving the best coffee in the industry. 

Her warm and open character create an environment where people feel comfortable stopping in for a shot of single origin or sitting and connecting over a Chemex.

Jamie Rice: Beach Location

I manage Bold Bean's beach location. When I'm not pulling shots for the shop, I enjoy being outside and tending to my home. Solo travel and last minute flights aren't as often as they used to be but still an important part of my life. I've started my own espresso catering service called Show Pigeon Coffee that keeps my passion for service and coffee close. I appreciate Bold Bean for their honesty, their humble work ethic, and for being the first big step up in Jacksonville's coffee scene.

Jess Diebel: San Marco Location

Jess has been a part of the Bold Bean family since March of 2015, starting out as a barista at the beach location and currently managing the San Marco shop.  Although still relatively new to all that coffee culture encompasses, Jess strives to bring humor, openness, and ongoing excellence in customer service to a company and community that honors and respects the coffee craft, it's origins, and how it expands the lives it interacts with.  When not wrangling coffee beans and caffeinated baristas, Jess, a native of Jacksonville Beach, soaks in the sunshine, time with family and friends and plans her excursions out to spots with altitude.
